Enlarged Insects were ordinary insects, such as ants, beetles, locusts, spiders, and dragonflies, until Apshai controlled them and made them into huge ghosts to carry out his plan to take over the world.


When Apshai arose from his Crystal Capstone, he summoned all insects to him. The capstone placed the insects under behavior control and turned them into ethereal enlargements. [1] [2] [3] They immediately set out on either guarding routes leading to Aphsai or building a facsimile of the Temple of Apshai with objects they scavenged from the nearby area. Apshai planned to use the bugs to destroy crops, buildings, and all of humanity.


The insects have augmented strength but they revert to normal insects when hit by Proton Streams. They have typical traits of regular bugs such as spiders shot webbing and an attraction to honey. All of the insects reverted to normal when Apshai was destroyed.
